24K service on 1997 R1100RT

Hi guys I have 24K service coming up on my bike. Is there any member in North Carolina (Winston Salem area) who can do it better and (probably) cheaper than the dealership?

The cheapest way is do it yourself. It is not that difficult. Unless you don't have any tools. I know there are a lot of reasons why people don't do it themselves, but doing it yourself will save you the most money.

I just completed the 24k service on my r1150rt. Most of the work is very simple and any DIY person with beginner experience can handle the job. The items that require a bit more skill is reaching the fuel filter, alternator belt replacement and valve adjustment. You can do it yourself if you take your time, take pictures along the way and obviously get a service manual explaining what needs to be done. I watched several YouTube videos before doing my service. Chris Harris is fantastic and has numerous videos on doing the various services. If you need help, send me an IM. I can give you some pointers, send photos, etc.
